  Original Published: 10/3/2013 Quite a discovery in Canada. This is what workers at an oil pipeline construction site in Alberta found. These are the fossilized remains of a large dinosaur. After finding the fossils, the crew immediately stopped work and contacted a paleontologist. That expert says finding a fossil this well-preserved and complete is incredibly rare. It's still not clear exactly what species the dinosaur was. A research team is now scrambling to carefully remove the fossil before Canada's harsh winter sets in.
